It was a lightbulb moment when I realized it was the habit I liked not the drink as such, the amount of money I spent on fuel station cappuccinos would have paid 2 phone bills.

I do seem less flight or fight too in my general disposition. There is general very vague tension that you consider normal until it goes away, then you realise how abnormal it was.

You can try using tea bags syberpunk.

Pittbullowner you can try just drinking regular tap water instead of soda pop

Perrier and meyer lemon with a mint leaf is a very nice drink.

Kombucha from GT or Health-Ade is also a lovely treat.

For warm drinks, pop down to your local tea shop and get some jasmine tea (for a little caffeine... and you only need a very few pieces per pot) or rooibos (for herbal & no caffeine).

yeah, that's what I gotta do. I'll go for like 4 months good drinking water and lemon honey sweetened tea...then i forget one day to pack some tea and say "Screw it, here's a gas station to perk me up" and then it's down in the dumps for that yellow 5 and super sweet HFCS. It's my one vice that i have now that i gotta get rid of

The forum could use some more good news. Pretty depressing lately around here. First calf of the year was born on the ranch yesterday. Little bull calf; nice and healthy. One of the dogs got knocked up and had puppies awhile back. Puppies and calves are good for a man's soul. Fun to see them bright eyed and bushy tailed jumping around learning about the world. Nice seeing innocent life born into a world and see glimpses of the future. Even when times get rough, it's a reminder that life will go on.

Dreams are like horses; they run wild on the earth. Catch one and ride it. Throw a leg over and ride it for all its worth.

I would've loved to have seen that. My farm dream is still very much just that, a dream, and I don't expect I'll do calving for a while even once I've got it, but after seeing a video of it it really filled me with a sense of wonder at the miracle of the cycle of life, the web of life on earth, etc.

RE: Positivity / Good News Only Lounge
I was all set to move from Manhattan to Brooklyn. My lease is up at the end of the month and a few weeks ago I found a great apartment for April 1st in an area I liked and went ahead and filled out the paperwork and paid the money and did the credit check etc. I wanted to get it done before I took a vacation in the middle of the month to France. No fee, reasonably priced for the size and location, overall I'm happy, Ok done.

I didn't sign the lease because the landlord I was dealing with wasn't available the day before I left for France so we said I can just take care of it when I get back to the USA.

Corona happens, I rush back to the USA to avoid getting stuck indefinitely in another country. I agree to the 2 week self quarantine from having traveled to a Shengen area. The new landlord says no problem, he can just email me the lease. I say sure, he mentions a small snag: the old tenants that are moving out at the end of March have not found a new place, and when they go to try to find a place, the buildings that were advertising for new tenants, it turns out most of them are no longer for rent because the old tenants don't want to move in the middle of a pandemic.

Just now they finally found a place. I'm set to move on April 1. I was worried that the tenant that was moving out would try to take advantage of newer lax eviction laws and try to keep the apartment, and after all I had not actually signed a lease so the apartment wasn't technically mine yet. I sign tomorrow. And what was potentially a huge headache is averted.

I am so freaking happy. My current apartment is a rodent and roach infested shithole and totally overpriced. It was rent stabilized but who cares, it was a shit hole, with landlords that were totally non responsive. I'm glad to be moving out now. Very happy.

Just saw the most gorgeous 6 foot brunette shopping today in Lidl. Looked like a young Kirstie Alley.

Social distancing was being kept, but physical distancing was not.

Any of you who forgot who Kirstie Alley is and are about to google her

STOP

Instead google "Kirstie Alley North and South", and know that I have spared you much pain.

RE: Positivity / Good News Only Lounge
My sister dropped off my little 4 year old niece early this morning so we could watch her. This niece is the quintessential cute little happy Hawaiian kid.

I took her and my woman out on a little cruise around the bay and stopped at my safe swimming spot. The two of them were sitting on the bow and laughing it up. It was charming.

Then this giant sea creature pops up and just hung around. It must have been a blue whale. Then it's baby pops up. They were spraying us and waving their whale tails. My niece was rubbing it with her foot. It was one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. My girls were all happy and I was the king of the ocean.

Aloha!
